Great food, ambience and service

Best restaurant in town with service to match. Expensive but well worth it. Dining room serves both breakfast and dinner, not lunch. Breakfast buffet is first rate.

Everyone was wonderful except self-important Diane. She treated quests as though they were beneath her. We were shocked when she informed us, "I have 224 quests" as though she owned the Inn. Over 3/4 of the tables were empty throughout our dining experience. Management should replace the Ice Queen and encourage a gracious, welcoming manner.

We ate several breakfasts here over the weekend as well as dinner...excellent menu choices and great presentation. We had the grilled salmon and swordfish and both were perfectly grilled! Salad choices and desserts were outstanding!

Ok, I'll be honest. I haven't eaten there in years. When I did, it was very good but a little short on atmosphere. Go try it and report in. When here, please don't kill things on the beach. Leave the sand dollars and starfish in the water.

Really enjoy the dining experience at the Gasparilla Inn. Old Florida elegance and hospitality. Charming hotel. Beautifully presented food and perfectly prepared. Love seeing the men in jackets. So classy.

My son was visiting us this past Jan and wanted to take me out for a nice dinner. He booked reservations through "Open Table". There was a notation of "jacket required" but no mention of jeans. My son was dressed in dark jeans, white linen shirt and blazer with loafers. He looked very nice, but when we got to the... More
